District DentistMANDATED DENTAL EXAMINATION PROGRAM
The mandated dental examination program represents dental health services which pupils in specified grades must receive.
The dental examination provides baseline data for determining the dental health status of the pupil population served. Parents/guardians are encouraged to have their family dentist perform the examinations and report the results of the examination on approved forms provided by the school and returned to the school to be included in the comprehensive school health record. Examinations done by the family dentist within four months (up to one year with a Department of Health approved modification) prior to the opening of school are accepted for the required examination that year.
